Welcome Sign

It’s just about that time of year again. Time for the annual Benevolent Fund Patio Sale at Panorama! If you haven’t heard, the Patio Sale is a legend around here, grossing around $50,000 for the Benevolent Fund which provides assistance for Panorama residents in need as well as improvements for the whole campus to enjoy.

The following is a pictorial journey through this phenomenal community event.

Patio Sale History

The Patio Sale today

The Patio Sale crew works throughout the year gathering, sorting, and pricing items for resale. When a Panorama resident has something to donate, they call the Patio Sale volunteers who then pick up right from their front door.

The loot that accumulates come July is truly a sight to see! It’s all hands on deck for set-up. “So, don your ribbons and here we go!”
